This story leaves me with the feeling of silence and a clock ticking down towards inevitable grief.
Especially sriking is the way that Hakkai passed on, his final words...
I've read a few "growing old" scenarios in Saiyuki fanfics now, and you've managed to put your own special haunting quality into it that keeps the concept fresh. It always hurts. I think that in a way, this idea of The End is much more terrible to contemplate than any violent death that the characters might alternatively encounter. There is no such thing as a happy ending. The so called "happy endings" will only eventually result in death by time's decree.

Wow...that was beautifully depressing. And yet, just convoluted enough to let the reader interpret it as they will. A good sort of hurt.
